John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Grand-dad's war stories ... testimonies of protection

Recommended Posts

Possibly something your dad or granddad recounted ... Do you have one to share?

These things should be documented before they are forgotten!

 

. . . . . .

 

I have found a selection here.

 

I recounted the story of 24,500 troops escaping Narvik (Norway) protected by a sea fog that shielded them from German warships Sharnhorst and Gneisenhau only 1 mile away to our guide at Bletchley Park. He said "there are many of those stories, all for us, none for them".

 

 

Taken in isolation they may be attributed to "good luck", but put together maybe not so.

My grandfather before he died used to tell us the story of how in the Second War World he and his detachment escaped a besieged harbour under cover of darkness. If they had used a boat to get to the waiting evacuation vessels the noise would have given them away and brought down enemy fire, so they strapped themselves under barrels as floatation aids and floated out to them. It was a miracle they weren't spotted, but they got away.

 

With who the Allies were fighting, is it really such a shock that God may have intervened? Many of the commanders certainly seem to think someone favoured them.

      What's been in the news lately? We had the tumultuous midterm elections, the wild Mueller investigation and that whole shindig, and whatever Trump last said on camera. Can people even remember what our last conflict in the Middle East was? Yemen, I think. But that was months ago, so I think it's time for another war in the Middle East.

      By Katie Lange - It’s that time of year when we spring forward and are happy to get home from a busy day while it’s still light out. Did you know? The tradition of “springing” forward one hour was once nicknamed “war time.” The idea of daylight saving time originated in New Zealand in the 1800s, although it wasn’t implemented there until 1927. In America, daylight saving time first became official on March 19, 1918, when the Standard Time Act was signed into law. It allowed for ad
